full moon: what type of person do you hope to be?

Hm, I don’t know. Kind, intelligent, loved and loving, which sounds like the clichéd thing you’d put in the obituary of someone who doesn’t really have anyone who knows them well, but there you have it. 

constellations: who is someone you could talk to for hours and never stop?

@aeide-thea, lol 

reminder: who is someone you will never forget?

This I really don’t have a good answer for: most of the people who were in my life and who I wanted in my life are still in it. I guess the boy I kissed under the moon by a lake in the Adirondacks while talking about werewolves.

tragically, absolutely nothing. human contact, when it doesn’t make it worse; tumblr, when it doesn’t contribute; drinking water, usually; getting out of the heat (seriously I felt like heck all day and realized at like 9 pm it was because I was overheating).

waxing: what is your proudest accomplishment?

UGH graduating college ~cum laude~ UGH but I would like to mitigate the pretentiousness of that and the pretentiousness of caring five years later with the fact that I had to overcome very bad depression, not being medicated for said depression, three STEM classes, and just Generally Feeling Awful to get there. 

contemplation: if you could wake up one morning and everything in your life was perfect, what would that look like?

I am independently wealthy. I have a comfortable apartment in NYC. Some of it is furnished in the height of Baroque ridiculousness; some of it in tasteful Mid-Century Modern. I don’t have to work. I write sometimes; I receive recognition for my writing. I have a significant other who doesn’t mind that it’s a two-bedroom because I Need My Space. I am rested. My skin is clear. I can afford to buy an entire Sephora.

ok, new theory: I’m an AI whose creators, for some reason unknown to me, put me in a really terrible body

Evidence: 

Overheats really easily 

Doesn’t work if too hot 

Doesn’t get other people

Needs to be restarted often

@ everyone who makes ‘no-knead bread recipes’: why 

the kneading is the point, the physicality of interaction with the dough, pummelling it, moulding it into what you want it to be, the slap of the dough on the board, the feel of it in your hands, the absolute knowledge that this is your creation

the problem with having my shelves three books deep is that they’re pretty much in reverse order of when I got them so when I want to get the thing I got in, uh, February out so I can finally read it it will be Work.

I think anyone who took an ancient language in high school used a line from whatever they were reading in inappropriate circumstances - ours was “θάρσει, τέκνον” (take courage, child), which the Nurse says to Phaedra in the Hippolytus, which we used at the slightest misfortune.

solointhesand replied to your photo: I admit, I mostly got this for the title - but…

I have this!! So that’s why you were thinking about Patient Griselda! It all makes sense now.

that’s where you’re wrong! I think someone reblogged a photoset about Griselda.

protip: do not look for sense or coherency on this blog, especially on the weekend

peripatetia:

elucubrare:

elucubrare:

Quintillus (Latin: Marcus Aurelius Claudius Quintillus Augustus;[1][2] c. 212 – April 270) was Roman Emperor for a few months [emphasis mine] in 270.

i’m not saying #goals but #goals

The few records of Quintillus’ reign are contradictory. They disagree on the length of his reign, variously reported to have lasted as few as 17 days and as many as 177 days (about six months).

Surviving Roman records considered Quintillus a moderate and capable Emperor.

OK but how 

i’m pretty sure i could be capable for 17 days straight 

I’m pretty sure I *couldn’t* be capable for 17 days straight…

look, if you told me “you are going to be emperor for 17 days and then you are going to be assassinated by Praetorians or whatever, keep it together” I could definitely fake being a good and noble emperor for that long
